 operations of loopback

In loopback device, GID is generated by UUIDv4 algorithm, CHID is reserved 0xFFFF, SEID is generated using the same algorithm as ISM device under s390 architecture, and is 0 and disabled under non-s390 architecture.

IMO, get_system_eid should not be part of smcd_ops. And should not be provided by an smcd device.
It is a system_eid is a global value that is valid for all smcd interfaces of this system (os instance).
So I think it should be provided by the smc module. 

I agree it needs to be architecture dependent and same as today for s390.
